Set Up Save As to go to each class' home directory.
I am setting up computers for the new school year, and I would like to be able to set up Pixie 4 to automatically go to each class' home directory on our server when they save their projects. I've tried a couple different ways and am having no luck. I was able to set up an activities folder on a shared drive and get that to work successfully, but am having trouble getting the the Save As to go directly to their home directory on our server instead of My Documents. I wasn't sure if I'm not editing the correct entry on the settings ini file, or if I'm just not getting the correct file path.
We are using class logins as opposed to individual logins, that takes them to a directory that is shared with the whole class. I was hoping to create a Pixie folder there and point the program to that folder. The folder location would be different based on the class that is logged in, so I wasn't sure I could do that, (have the location change based on who is logged in) or not. The drive letter would be the same for each class, it would just be pointing to a different folder based on which class is logged in, so wasn't sure if I could just use the drive letter and then list the Pixie folder in the root of that drive (s:Pixie), or if I had to use the actual server path.(\\\\servername\folder name\etc.). I have tried it both ways with no luck, so not sure what I"m doing wrong, but my shared media folder is working under:
Shared media location media.home=\\\\stfrancis\\faculty\\Apps\\Pixie4\\Shared\\Activities\\en
Any help would be appreciated,thanks
